Great Valley Trail

Rough but pretty

June, 2024 by mick22

This scenic trail is woodsy and off the beaten path. A road bike won't cut it, but if you've got a hybrid or mountain bike and don't mind a rough ride, it can be fun. Bug repellant is a good idea in the warmer months.

If you're doing the Great Valley/Paulinskill/Sussex Branch loop, the Augusta Road parking lot is a good place to start because it's at a low elevation. You can start out making the uphill slog over Great Valley's rough terrain, then once you connect with Paulinskill the going gets easier (and the pesky bugs disappear!).

If you're doing the loop in this counter-clockwise direction, it can be hard to find the connection between Great Valley and Paulinskill. Note that Great Valley doesn't end at Plotts Road as shown in the Traillink map - you need to continue on a bit further until the trail meets Junction Road. Then cross the road diagonally and you should be able to find the entrance to the Paulinskill trail. See the map I posted in the photos section - it shows the mileage for each of the three legs.

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

Loop from Frenchtown, NJ to New Hope, PA and back

May, 2024 by lmktlm64

Rode the approx. 33 mile loop the day after Memorial Day. We've had so much rain that the usual hard pack was a bit soft, especially on the PA return side. From Frenchtown to Lambertville, it is 90+ percent shade and is very smooth and easy until you get close to Lambertville. Had a nice lunch in New Hope at Triumph Brewery. Coming north back to Frenchtown posed some obstacles as we were forced off the tow path and had to ride the very narrow River Road twice because of small bridge repairs being done. Being a midweek day, the traffic wasn't so bad but I wouldn't try this on a weekend. The tow path side isn't as smooth and is much more open to the sun than the Jersey side and can be narrow and in various states of condition and surface material. Still was a beautiful day to be out and would do again. Short time on country road to get back to the Frenchtown bridge. Lots of parking in Frenchtown in the next to the bridge.

Woodbine Railroad Trail

Good trail to bike! Pretty flat paved trail. Not much foot or bike traffic. We biked on Memorial Day Weekend and we passed only three bikers.

Henry Hudson Trail

Great Views

May, 2024 by jorgeosoria

I completed 26 miles this morning with beautiful views of the jersey shore..Trail is paved and can be completed on a road bike. Trail splits twice and it is quite confusing as to where the trail picks up again. Make sure you have you phone for map details or plan ahead. Other than that a nice trail.
